    Why is Adam not metioned in the list of 10 people (Mishna Sotah 9:2)?

      By Adam it was completely on a different level. The Mishnah there speaks of people like Haman, who were simply selfish. By Adam, there was an idealistic ambition: He wanted to be infinite as the Divine. Yet, like everything in the world, even the lowest manifestations of negativity originate in a sublime source.

    Wonderful, Wonderful...
    multifaceted shiur - a wealth of knowledge, resources, and presentation. Very robust teaching - kol hakavod! You enlighten and enliven my relationship with the parsha (and, by extension, with Hashem), weekly. It's that much clearer and memorable (as is learning about my self/my own areas for personal improvement), consequently. Thank you!

    ADAM AND EVE
    Humans. Always wanting the one thing they can't have. Adam and Eve set the right tone for humanity.

    To Gila
    Rabbi Jacobson said this was "one possible explanation." It does not account for all. if a child is taught all these things in an emotionally dysfunctional way, it may backfire. if a child lacks any tools to succsed in the "system," here too he may not endure. And so many other factors.
    yet i think we all see, that children who are taught to a geneuine set of values in a genuine and not dysfunctional and abusive way, it stays with them. sometimes it lay dormat but later in life it emerges in its full splendor.
